1. A romantic night with just you.
Add candles to the room, if you don’t have a lot of candleholders, improvise! Almost any non-flammable object can make a great candleholder. Use small plates or empty baby food jars for votives. A large bowl with floating candles will look great with its combination of gentle light and movement.
Music is always a good idea. If you and he have a special song that reminds you both of the time you first met, your first kiss or the first time you said, “I Love You,” include that in your set up for the room.
His and her lingerie wouldn’t be a bad idea either. A luscious negligee will leave you feeling anything but neglected and you can get him a spiffy pair of silk shorts. Not used to bearing some skin? If you feel self conscious, keep your lingerie in mind as you hit the gym a few weeks before the special night, and start to feel good from the inside out as your health and self esteem improve. Do whatever it takes to enjoy a romantic evening for just the two of you and celebrate your anniversary in style.
2. Enjoy a special vacation away from home.
If your husband is into specific niche interests, it can be difficult year after year to come up with new anniversary ideas.
3.Have you considered unusual or exotic lessons?
If he is drawn to cooking, sign up for a cooking class for the two of you. There are several types to choose from in most cities. From Cordon Bleu French Gourmet style to learning the basics of making sushi, you and your favorite guy can have a blast learning new things to cook up in the kitchen.
Scuba lessons are also warmly welcomed if he likes the ocean. Many people are amazed at the array of life that is occurring below the waves. You can both sign up and get certified to sport dive, which will take you to about 35-feet below the surface and you’ll be able to see so much more of the ocean wildlife than you’d ever get to see when simply snorkeling.
If he thrives on adrenaline, have you considered skydiving lessons? Many people enjoy skydiving as a hobby and it’s not an overly expensive hobby to get into.
4. Married to Inspector Gadget?
Golf course knives are also popular among men that enjoy walking the greens. The knives usually come with handy tools such as divot repairers, bottle openers, and usually a couple of golf ball markers.

Other unusual offerings include a digital frame that changes photos every few minutes and special hot dog rollers and other barbeque equipment.
5. Give a special message to your man.
6. Plan a special anniversary alfresco.
Let nature provide the ambiance with a night under the stars, in the mountains, or on a beach. Take a long walk hand-in-hand breathing in the fresh air and sharing confidences. Nibble on hot dogs over an open fire topped with s’mores and washed down with a favorite beverage. As the moon shines, crawl into sleeping bags and let nature’s music take it from there. Plan for one night or a weekend, but make it fun for both of you.
7. Making music in and out of the bedroom.
8. Massage for Two
